Addon for Addons?

Postby Harshmage » Thu Jan 04, 2007 6:27 pm

From all of my searching, there are WoW Addons that help you sort and enable/disable addons on the fly within the game (lots of addons do that, but not all dump to a .lua file for UU to see).

Now, what I'm after is a WoWRoster addon that will display the addons a character has enabled. It'll mean the ability to upload another .lua file (probably CS_AddOnOrganizer), the additional SQL entries, and the display of said addons on the page (preferably on the Character page).

If anyone can give me a starting point other than the AddonSDK, I'd really appreciate it.

Well, to get to know PHP a bit better you can take a closer look at other addons or the wowroster itself. If you want something a bit more extensive to start out with, you're welcome to strip altmonitor of the actual altmonitor stuff but use it's DB installer and config system.

Seen it, and even thought of it. The only question I have is, does LoadIt place individual character .lua's in the character's SV folder, or just one in the central SV repository?

Here's the .lua file for CS_AOO, but as a warning, here's the beginning of the file:

Code: Select all
CS_AddOnOrganizer_Profiles = {
   [1] = {
      [1] = "Everything",
      [2] = "CS_AddOnOrganizer",


The [1] is the profile name for the addon loadout. Of course, [2] is the CS_AOO, listing itself first. Everything else is alphabetic, ignoring the ! before any addons (like !!!Libs or !BugGrabber), but keeps the ! there for reference purposes.

Edit: I take that back, three !'s place the addon first, but just one ! is ignored but kept.

The only problem is that there is no character name to identify the list with.
